Solution: Monitor an electric bore

Electric bores are critical parts of your property’s water solution. 

They play an important role in ensuring that your stock has water through pushing water to your tanks and turkey nests.  Electric bores can also fill your house tank. 

The OPS solution provides various ways to monitor the operation of your electric bores.  It is important to know that each bore is effectively pushing water.  

Monitoring your bore can also alert you to pipeline faults or leaks as soon as they are detected.

Monitoring the outward water pressure will show that the bore is effectively pushing water.  If the pipeline downstream from the bore splits or breaks, a drop in pressure can be detected.  If the inlet water flow to the bore is constrained, this will be seen in the outward pressure.  Likewise if the bore becomes clogged with debris, this will affect its ability to push water. 

Monitor key bores, or all your bores to provide assurance that your stock has access to water.

A water pressure sensor is typically mounted in a T-piece.  There are no moving parts with a water pressure sensor.  A cable connects the OPS Data Monitor to the sensor.  

Depending on water pressure levels and flows, you can also install water flow sensors downstream from the bore. 

The OPS Alerting solution will let you know if the water pressure or water flow from the bore is outside normal levels.

View your data on the OPS Portal.  View your data in real-time as the OPS Data Monitors regularly send back new water pressure or flow readings.

There is no limit to the number of OPS monitors you can have installed on your property.  And remember that there are no data costs for OPS monitoring and control solutions.
